Parking Strategy Implementation Plan
Enterprise Services maintains more than 6,000 parking stalls located in 28 locations, providing employee, visitor and vendor/service access. Parking stalls range from agency assigned reserved stalls, zoned stalls for general access, and visitor only stalls (restricted from employees who have assigned parking on the capitol campus). The parking system is a mix of garages, surface parking lots and on-street parking.
In July 2015, the Legislature -- through the proviso outlined in 2EHB 1115 Sec. 1088 -- directed Enterprise Services to develop an implementation plan for a Capitol Campus parking strategy. The implementation plan will put in place a set of recommendations from the 2014 Transportation and Parking Study.
As Enterprise Services continues work to carry out the implementation plan, the agency is taking steps to improve parking availability. These include:
- A parking enforcement program reduces unpermitted parking.
- Converting reserved stalls to general use zoned stalls. With zoned parking, availability improves because spaces can be shared among a group of employees rather than being assigned to individuals.
- Redesign of the parking layout in the Plaza Garage added 133 employee stalls as well as a new visitor parking area.
- Enterprise Services is actively engaged in supporting commute trip reduction programs.
